9th November

Our students worked together and they planned actions. Here are their ideas.



8th November

In the morning we saw a presentation about the European Elections turnout.



Afterwards we split into groups and mada a video about the Erasmus + programme.

Then, we had an activity where we collected information – why people don’t vote and what to do about it.

In the afternoon, we saw the similarities among the ideas. Each group started developping an activity plan – how to do something about the fact that people don’t vote.


7th November – Field Trip to Lisbon

The trip to Lisbon was a really good experience. We liked to discover more about the European Elections and the European Parliament. The way that the Lisbon Story Centre portraied the history of Portugal was very interesting too. 

The visit to Espaço Europa offered us a lot of usefull information about the European programmes and how the EU Parliament works. It was also very good the fact that they showed us why it is important to vote.

In the afternoon, we went to the a place where the History of Lisbon is told in an interactive way, which we think it was very interesting.
